Mocking Others Even In Death: How God-Like Is That?

Mankind are funny creatures.

We create a god, or allow others to create one for us.

Then we endow god with the attributes that we lack: love, compassion, mercy, capacity for forgiveness and omnipotence.

We create elaborate rituals and liturgies, as a means of worship.

And to make everything more impressive, we talk about heaven and hell.

Doing good, we rarely do, or care about.

God understands, god forgives.

Just prostrate and bow.

Say your prayers, do your ablutions.

We throw stones, and we draw blood.

All in the defence, and name of god.

To book a place for us in heaven.

And condemn the others to hell.

God understands, god forgives.

But have we forgotten?

We are puny.

And god is omnipotent.

Why would god need us to fight for him?

And kill in his name.

That we might attain paradise, and consign the others to hell, burning forever?

Have we forgotten?

God is, after all, loving, compassionate, merciful and forgiving.

Surely, god is not easily deceived?

Surely, you can't bribe god with bowing and prostrations, rituals and liturgies?

Surely, god cares more for deeds than form?

Surely, god is not fooled?

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
